    Slovakiaring Welcomes World Sidecars


    It seems like only yesterday since the “FIM World Sidecar Championship” teams kicked off their 2018 season in Le-Mans, but that is all in the past. The teams are heading to a new circuit to them. The 5.922km “Slovakia Ring” will welcome the sidecar teams. Opened in 2009, the fast, mainly right hand corner circuit is a short 35km from the capital Bratislava. As like in Le-Mans the sidecars will be supporting the “FIM, Endurance World Championship”.

    Reeves takes win but no championship!

    With dry conditions, but overcast, the lights went out for the last race of the season for the FIM Sidecar World Championship and the FIM Sidecar F2 World Trophy.

    Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze got the perfect start from pole position with their "Remse Racing/Team Eaide" LCR, Yamaha, they set off down "Craner Curves" letting the rest of the field know what their intensions were, a race win would only do for them.

    Championship leaders Pekka Paivarinta and Kirsi Kainulainen with their "44-Racing" LCR, BMW slotted in behind Reeves and Cluze, they had to stay out of trouble throughout the race, and hope that their machine would last the race distance to take the championship title.
